Introduction: John van Luyn
The Melkweg celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and with many programmes during the whole year. For film there's 50 special films including film selections of Melkweg icons.
The film 'Metal: A Headbanger's Journey' is chosen by music programmer John van Luyn and is an examination of the heavy metal music subculture that tries to explain why, despite the longevity and popularity of the genre, fans are marginalized and ridiculed for their passion. With Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Tom Araya (Slayer), Vince Neil (Mötley Crüe), Lemmy (Motorhead) and Corey Taylor (Slipknot).
Interviews met Alice Cooper, Bruce Dickinson, Rob Zombie en vele anderen illustreren de ingewikkelde muzikale en politieke geschiedenis van heavy metal. In deze bijna persoonlijke zoektocht van de filmmaker, krijgt de kijker een interessante blik in de gaarkeuken van de zwarte, langharige, hoofdschuddende metalheads.
Melkweg Cinema is thé Dutch film theater for music films. From unique concert films to much talked about music documentaries: the whole spectrum of music film can be seen here.
